Washington : Netflix, on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, unveiled the trailer for the upcoming second season of the romantic drama series ‘Bridgerton’, which focuses on the love triangle between Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and sisters Edwina (Charithra Chandran) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley).

In the three-minute-long trailer, Anthony begins to court Edwina after she arrives from India, spurring a protectiveness in Kate that brings herself and Anthony closer together.

“What happens when duty is in conflict with the heart’s true desire?” Julie Andrews’ gossip-chronicling narrator Lady Whistledown questions in the trailer. “Then there is potential for a considerable scandal indeed.”

As per Variety, the series also stars Adjoa Andoh, Lorraine Ashbourne, Harriet Cains, Bessie Carter, Shelley Conn, Nicola Coughlan, Phoebe Dynevor, Ruth Gemmell, Florence Hunt, Martins Imhangbe, Claudia Jessie, Calam Lynch, Luke Newton, Golda Rosheuvel, Luke Thompson, Will Tilston, Polly Walker and Rupert Young.

Shonda Rhimes serves as executive producer for the series under her Shondaland banner, alongside Betsy Beers, Tom Verica and Chris Van Dusen. Van Dusen also serves as creator and showrunner.

The second season of ‘Bridgerton’ will premiere all episodes on March 25.

A March 5, 2022 report by ANI noted — As the second season premiere date of the Netflix period drama ‘Bridgerton’ nears, the streaming platform has revealed that the show’s new season will feature a cover version of a famous Bollywood song.

‘Bridgerton’ season 2 is going to include an orchestra cover of the title track from Karan Johar’s ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’, which has been composed by Kris Bowers. Apart from this, the upcoming season will also feature a cover version of songs including Nirvana’s ‘Stay Away’, Madonna’s ‘Material Girl’, Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’, Robyn’s ‘Dancing on my own’, Alanis Morissette’s ‘You Oughta know’, Harry Styles’ ‘Sign of the times’, Calvin Harris’ ‘How Deep is your love’ and Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’.

Speaking about these covers, showrunner Chris Van Dusen stated that there is a method to the madness, according to E! News.

He said, “I chose all of these songs for very specific reasons. Each one is incredibly powerful and deeply emotional in its own special way. I always try many different songs for any one scene before landing on the perfect one to use. This season, I couldn’t be more thrilled about our musical playlist.”

Agreeing to this series’ music supervisor Justin Kamps said he is “excited for everyone to hear these songs,” because even though they may be “huge songs that everyone knows,” an instrumental version “breathes new life and brings them to a new audience.”

The first season of ‘Bridgerton’ was also filled with classical covers of modern-day hits including Maroon 5’s ‘Girls Like You’, Shawn Mendes’ ‘In My Blood’, Taylor Swift’s ‘Wildest Dreams’, among several others.
The teaser of the upcoming season was unveiled on the occasion of Valentine’s Day. ‘Bridgerton’ season two is based on Julia Quinn’s novel ‘The Viscount Who Loved Me’, the second in Quinn’s best-selling ‘Bridgerton’ series.
